Summer 1 welcome from Miss Watson.
I hope you have all had a fantastic Easter holiday but it’s now the toughest time of the year for Year 6!
Boosters will be continuing this half term and the first session will be Thursday 13th April 3pm-4:15pm and the final session will be Thursday 10th May 3pm-4:15pm . All children also have their revision guides that they should be completing at home.
Our topic for the whole of the summer term is ID. For the start of the topic can I please ask that children bring in a plain white t-shirt that they are able to paint onto and a photograph of them as a baby (in a sealed envelope with their name on the front) by Friday 20th April.
Throughout the year we will be focusing on the basic skills across the curriculum. We will be encouraging the children to continue developing skills such as handwriting, reading, spelling and mathematics. In English and Maths this half term we will be focusing on SATs revision to support children with achieving their full potential.
To support the children every other Friday, Mrs Kilby will be working with the children to develop their art skills which will be linked to the topic. She will work alongside our PE specialist Mr Goddard. The children will have a double session of art one week, followed by a double session of PE the following week. The children will still have a weekly PE session with me and complete the daily mile each afternoon. PE kits should be sent into school on a Monday.
In Year 6 home learning will be issued on a Wednesday and due back in on a Monday. The children will receive English, maths, spelling and reading. This will be brought home in their special home learning bag. Their spelling test will take place on a Monday and they will be expected to read at least 3 times a week. I have stocked the classroom’s reading area with books so the children are able to bring them home and enjoy them with you or on their own. Children should also be accessing the Timetables Rockstars APP to improve their rapid recall of the tables.
Thank you for your support.
Miss Watson and the UKS2 team.
